A Light Shines in JOY
We light this candle to proclaim our faith in the coming of Christ’s light into the world. Christ’s joy is a light that shines in the darkness that the darkness does not overcome.
“And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.” Luke 2:8-10
